The adaptive system – controlling perfect motion

Even doors that are closed with force ... are brought to a gentle halt ... and close silently and effortlessly.

Exceptional comfort through a highly adaptive system. BLUMOTION‘s intelligent adaptive system reacts automatically to important factors such as door size, door weight and closing speed, and then brakes the motion of the door accordingly. The result is perfect closing motion every time. Silent and effortless.

Braking element

This is how the adaptive system works Slow closing speed: The braking element expands slightly generating only modest resistance to the flow. The BLUMOTION effect is controlled via the flow speed and, in this case, remains low.

Fast closing speed: The braking element expands which constricts the flow channel to create greater resistance. This results in a strong BLUMOTION effect.

Closing speed that is too fast:The overload safety feature kicks in. The excessive force is diverted using an additional flow channel and both BLUMOTION and the hinge are protected from damage.

This means that everyone – from manufacturer to dealer and retailer all the way to the end customer – can make the decision at any time whether or not they want to profit from the added value of the new BLUMOTION technology.

Sales: Even if BLUMOTION is left out of the furniture manufacturing process, it is still not too late to add it further down the distribution chain. Thanks to BLUMOTION 973A‘s easy assembly feature, you can surprise and inspire your customers during sales discussions. Your customers will be unable to resist once they have experienced a practical demonstration of the perfect motion.

Assembly: The consumer still has the option to include perfect motion even when the furniture is in their house. BLUMOTION 973A can be simply attached on to the pre-assembled hinges. In next to no time the transformation is complete!
